The PhD Programme

A PhD programme is a 3 year research programme carried out in close cooperation with researchers. The programme consists of an independent research project, participation in course work, educational activities and/or other forms of dissemination, periodic stays with another research institution or scientific environment - preferably abroad - as well as the preparation of a dissertation.

As a PhD student at Computer Science you will be associated with one of our research sections.

By acquiring a PhD you are qualified to work as a researcher, teaching at a university, and to work with research and development in industry.
